Dental Assistant (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – August 25, 2017
Great Expressions is not a good company to work for. They do not treat their employees equal and they do not fight to keep their offices staffed. They try to over work their assistants. They understanding of those who have certain medical issues especially pregnant women.I would recommend researching the company before applying, due to the fact of bare minimum pay.

RDH (Current Employee) – Savannah, GA – August 18, 2017
Typical day: Meeting of days work schedule. Appreciated for independent motivated work. Access Pt needs and treat accordingly. I have learned there are companies who respect employees and treat them well. Management is proactive in customer service and positive work environment. Hardest part of job: nothing! Most enjoyable part of job is being treated with respect and positive atmosphere.
Dentist (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – August 15, 2017
I started my career as a dentist at GEDC shortly after graduating dental school. Over the past 5 years, management has supported me and allowed me to grow professionally. If you bring a good work ethic and a strong sense of integrity to the table, you're recognized, acknowledged and groomed for success. Really happy I followed my hunch to move to Tampa to work for GEDC, it has turned into a lifelong career. Highly recommended.
Endless growth opportunities
Not a lot but maybe more time off would be awesome ;)
Terrible place to work, horrible place to have dental treatment
Patient Care Coordinator (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – August 15, 2017
I worked here just under a year. It was miserable. They are so unprofessional. They spend more time out back smoking or gossiping than helping patients. The management is a joke. It is quite trashy and in the dental field I was surprised to see this level of lacking professionalism. It is a very hostile work environment and patients are seen as how much money they bring in that day on the appointment book. They have managers that travel around to the many offices, over 250... that are just as tacky and reek of stale cigarettes. The employees even talk bad about each other and have worked together years in some cases. I could not get out of there fast enough!
Dental Assistant (Former Employee) – Lawrenceville, GA – August 4, 2017
Busy fast paced environment. Your main focus is patient care. Each Dr. has their own treatment coordinator so you don't have to deal with insurance. Not a bad place to work if you are new to dental field. Mostly everyone is helpful and teams work as a unit.
Dental Assistant (Former Employee) – Bay Shore, NY – August 1, 2017
Traveling was involved out if state ,did not pay for wear and tear on vehicle and it just got out of hand .there is a lot of nepotism being that there are three sisters that work for the company and they hire friends and mostly there own race .
I love the people I work with. Corporate however is only about the money. Not good with work/life balance. Always overworking staff. Corporate doesn't care about their employees however depending on what office you work in, the office employees are great!
Dental assistance (Current Employee) – Ohio – June 9, 2017
Management has no idea about dentistry and what it takes to make a company grow. Front desk staff doesn't move all day they sit in their chairs and bark orders , lazy , dds over charge and at do horrible work. You are expected to scrub bathrooms and then take your uniform home and wash it. Poor pay, medical insurance is a joke ($4000 deductible ). Horrible toxic living coniving place to work. Hours are cut short. Drs call off left and right. Dental assistance are scheduled here , hygienists are taken care of better than the doctors.
You have a horrible job
Horrible pay, benefits have terrible coverage, worst management I've ever worked for
Patient coordinator/dental assistant (Former Employee) – Rockland County, NY – May 27, 2017
After working at Great Expressions for more than one year without taking any sick time I was let go because I was out for one week (in the hospital) and then got the flu for another week shortly after getting out of the hospital.
My manager did not know how to talk to people and had several customer complaints against her.
The health plan was expensive and had a very high deductible that did not cover anything.
I stuck it out because I am a single mom with two kids. However being let go for being sick (with doctors notes) just shows how disloyal this company is to it's workers.
Disloyal to employees - and upsells customers with unnecesary work.
I was employed for all of 1 week. I drove over an hour to the office that I traveled to twice a week just to find out all of the patients for the day were canceled and no one called me. ALSO, the office manager told me I was being terminated because of my attendance. I missed a week of work during my probationary period because I had Mono. i obtained 2 drs notes one from the hospital because I was there for a day and one from my primary care physician. I still list my job because I missed 3 1/2 days of work. Ridiculous.
